The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I just started a family of my own, and having these moments last forever in a photo is so special. I want to help others do the same.
What do you love most about your job? The end result is so important to me. When the client picks up their pictures and sees them it's such a big moment for me. All of my photo shoots have been edited and ready for pick up within 24 hours. All my clients get excited about that, and I enjoy their gratitude.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? "When I got home and saw the pictures already posted within hours I was so surprised ya actually made it look so good. I thought edits would be small details here and there. Didn't imagine nothing like this."
